Roasted Garlic Ingredients:
1 head of garlic
good extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
berries, cheeses, olives (optional)
In traditional Italian restaurants you receive a whole roasted garlic, but that takes too long to cook (about an hour). For quicker roasted garlic, I simply remove as much of the outer papery skin as possible and separate the garlic into individual cloves with the skins in place. Put the cloves into an oven-safe ramekin and cover with EVOO. Bake for about 30 minutes at 350°F. Remember to remove the garlic skin before eating. We simply squeeze the garlic onto the bread - the garlic and oil just ooze out.
Enjoy with soft French bread! You could even combine with fruits, olives, or nuts of your choice.
